Clearing the Way is a repeatable quest that can be obtained in the Commonwealth in Fallout 4.
The Sole Survivor is asked to clear out a prospective settlement scoped out by settlers and/or the Commonwealth Minutemen.
- This is the basic settlement unlocking quest. Garvey will mark a new location on the map for the player. The player then has to clear it of hostiles and construct a settlement recruitment beacon, power it up, and flick the switch. All that's left afterwards is going back to Garvey.
